Scientific Linux Security Update : git on SL7.x x86_64

Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

A flaw was found in the way the git-remote-ext helper processed
certain URLs. If a user had Git configured to automatically clone
submodules from untrusted repositories, an attacker could inject
commands into the URL of a submodule, allowing them to execute
arbitrary code on the user's system.
